Toronto ranked 9th best city in the world to be a student

Toronto is one of the best cities in the world to be a student according to a new report in the Guardian. In a global ranking of student-friendly cities, our fair town comes in at an impressive ninth, up four spots from last year's report. Other cities to make the top 10 include Paris, Melbourne, London, Sydney, Hong Kong, Boston, Tokyo, Montreal, and Seoul.

The primary factors measured in the study were affordability, desirability, academic standards and job prospects. The brief writeup devoted to Toronto indicates that our high ranking has much to do with the desirability metric. That makes sense given how well the city tends to fare in global livability rankings and the like. It might, however, come as surprise to York U students making the positively bone-chilling walk between Vanier and Stong.
